  1. Meh... I didn't find any record of that bladder ever being replaced. I suspect it might be the age of the airplane, 64 years, but I find that hard to believe as well.
  2. As a matter of fact, my right one is leaking presently. Near the top where it doesn't typically have fuel touching it. I am cringing at the thought of pulling that out and sending it to get it rebuilt.
  3. Stick your foot on the floor, roll the wing down into the wind. When you can't keep the nose straight with the runway, you've exceeded the capability.
  4. Ditto on the intake leak I have an O470 that the front two cylinders would not participate when it was cold. Rough idle, but smooth run-up. You could watch the cylinders come to life in the run-up. Once warm, it would idle fine. Found the leak under the number 5 riser and also at the boot where the balance tube connects. Fixed that and idles great now! When I had the Mooney, I had a devil of a time getting the intake tubes to seal against the cylinders. It took coating the gaskets with #3 Permatex Aviation sealer before I was able to finally get rid of the leaks.
  5. It's on top of the nose wheel well.
  6. If I were a betting man, I would bet that switch is perfectly fine. It's just out of adjustment. In the event you do need to get a new one, Mouser electronics carries them. A few years ago they were about $200. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  7. Are you sure it's bad? It looks like mine did, only moving about 1/16". Try adjusting it 1/8" closer to the pressure plate. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  8. The guy on the Hawker was a textbook job of how you should handle a gear up problem. The guy in the Aerostar, not so much. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  9. I had the same problem. Cold weather only Here's the solution.... With 90% certainty, the gear pucks are the problem. You can... Replace the pucks. $$$$ Or You can adjust the squat switch in the left wheel well about 1/8" closer to the pressure plate. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

  11. It will probably be 4k and interface with nothing but Garmin. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  12. Perfect! See, always good advice on this forum! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  13. I usually just close my eyes most of the time. Especially during landing. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  14. That's quite the story! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  15. It was a good brain candy movie. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  16. A plugged injector will make the cylinder run lean. You would see an increase in egt but it would be steady. All your other numbers are normal. Look for what doesn't fit. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  17. Without looking at the log, I THINK it has about 400 hours on it. It's a McCauly 3-blade. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  18. I have oil-filled props. One is leaking and needs to be resealed. The oil WILL leak at some time. The grease filled MAY leak. No corrosion with oil-filled though. Eddy current inspection is a non-event. If you don't want the hassle, put a "B" hub on it. Personally, to me, it's not worth the expense. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  19. It's actually a video, if you play it, you will see the number 6 EGT on the left engine bouncing around. If this is kind of what you're experiencing, I would say without a doubt it's a probe. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
